The Week 12 Sunday schedule will be a little light due to the Thanksgiving slate, but we will see the return of popular DFS stacks like the Chiefs and the Cardinals after they were missing from the slate last week.

If you’d like to roster Patrick Mahomes or Kyler Murray, consider these players for under $5,000 on DraftKings.

James White, Patriots RB ($4,500)

After Rex Burkhead suffered a knee injury last week, White took over the backfield pass-catching duties, garnering six receptions on nine targets for 64 yards. He also rushed five times for 19 yards. Burkhead will miss Week 12 and the game script should favor White’s reception totals as New England will likely trail Arizona, which is favored by 2.5 points.

Nelson Agholor, Raiders WR ($4,900)

Agholor has experienced an up-and-down year, with some zero- and one-reception games, and some nice DFS performances – such as last week’s six catch, 88 yards, one TD line that resulted in 20.8 DFS points on DraftKings. The Raiders travel to Atlanta in Week 12 and the Falcons rank 30th in the NFL against opposing receivers in DFS in 2020.

Corey Davis, Titans WR ($4,900)

Throw out his bagel in Week 9 and Davis averaged six receptions and 85 receiving yards per game since Week 7. He’s become a top target for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, rivaling the targets of presumed No. 1 receiver AJ Brown.

Richie James, 49ers WR ($3,500)

James couldn’t duplicate his Week 10 feat of nine receptions for 184 yards and a TD against the Saints. In that game, he snagged just five passes for 26 yards. Deebo Samuel likely returns from injury this week, which doesn’t help James, but it’s worth noting that James is now listed above Kendrick Bourne on the depth chart. At this low price, he might be worth a flier in Week 12 due to his big-play ability. One deep touchdown catch and he pays off that salary.

Hunter Henry, Chargers TE ($4,800)

Henry has proven consistent lately, with four receptions in five of his past six games. That includes last week against the Jets, where he gained 48 yards and scored once. He will face the Bills in Week 12, who despite their stellar record, are one of the worst in the league at defending the tight end position.
